Avnet to supply data centre and HPC technology to Latin America with Mellanox



Avnet to distribute Mellanox solutions in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Mexico.

B2B technology distributor company Avnet has announced a collaboration with Mellanox to expand its distribution network in Latin America.

Avnet will distribute Mellanox solutions in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Mexico.

Mellanox Technologies is a supplier of end-to-end Ethernet and InfiniBand intelligent interconnect solutions, as well as services for servers, storage and hyperconverged infrastructure.

Avnet has been tasked with providing partners with access to Mellanox’s offerings.

The agreement seeks to help solve end users’ requirements in networking connectivity, storage, converged and hyperconverged infrastructure, big data solutions and more.

Business-critical data acceleration with higher throughput and lower latency will be realisable, and partners can in turn help their customers simplify the transition to cloud computing and next-generation data centres – reducing their density footprints in the process.

Avnet partners will also have access to Mellanox’s end-to-end InfiniBand and Ethernet interconnect solutions and services for servers and storage.

Eduardo Barron, VP at Avnet Technology Solutions for Latin America and the Caribbean, said: “With this vital new alliance, Avnet will offer complete networking connectivity solutions to its value-added channel ecosystem, combining this solution with other strategic suppliers to deliver unmatched end-to-end solutions.

“With Avnet and Mellanox, our partners will now be able to enhance the performance of their customers’ data centres in new ways.

“Partners will receive all the necessary training and support for Mellanox through Avnet to help them pursue opportunities in the media/entertainment, petroleum and other industries and deliver efficient networking transmissions through next-generation Ethernet switches.”

Elias Consuegra, Latin America Sales Manager at Mellanox Technologies, said: “Avnet has consistently demonstrated a commitment to helping its partners understand and accelerate the growth of specialized technologies, such as Mellanox Technologies.

“We selected Avnet to support us in Latin America because of their global alliances, geographic coverage and strategic positioning in business solutions that service the corporate and mid-sized markets in the Latin America region.”
